Did you know that the port of Amsterdam is the world’s largest gasoline and cocoa port? Join the Amsterdam Port Tour – Boat Cruise and disover places that are normally only accessible for commercial shipping. This two hour boat cruise shows you a different side of Amsterdam.

As the largest petrol part in the world and with more than 600,000 tons of cocao beans finding their way to the city every year, Amsterdam is a leading player in these unique markets. How being small can lead to worldwide exchange!

Enjoy a unique and comfortable cruise in one of the worlds’ largest logistic hubs. The Amsterdam Port Tour takes you past the cocoa warehouse, where cocoa for the tastiest chocolates such as Verkade, Droste and Tony Chocolonely is stored and shipped. And amongst other unique views, you will pass a car terminal that processes 200,000 cars per year. Discover how the port transforms into a circular hub, while listening to interesting stories and information shared by professionals.

After casting off the mooring lines, the Amsterdam Port Tour starts directly on the ‘IJ’. The boat sails along large cargo ships and you may even pass one of the giant cruise ships arriving at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam. During the two hour tour, you will see the port in its current form. While seeing the “circular port”, you will hear more about the recent and future developments. The port of Amsterdam is working hard towards a fossil-free and sustainable port.

In good weather, you can enjoy the panoramic deck of the boat, where you can admire the views of the world’s largest cocoa and petrol port. Otherwise, you will have the comfort of the ship’s luxurious interior. Small bites and refreshments are available to purchase onboard.
